    Has anyone measured it under load, idle and standby?

    I'm wondering if there's any benefit to quitting XBMC to get into standby.

    Quitting XBMC returns back to the AppleTV interface. Not sure if it goes into standby from there. You can buy something called a "Kill-A-Watt" for like 20-30 bucks that you can use around your home to check electricity consumption on all your devices.

    Someone checked it out with a Kill-A-Watt meter and it does less than 2 watts while streaming video. No I did not leave off any zeros.:eek:

    Another example of how AMAZING the AppleTV2 really is... Powerful video player... 2 watts electricity. You can leave it on for 500 hours before it even uses 1kwh... How amazing is that???!!!
